Description of the course:
Five Things Every Executive Should Know About Risk
The business executive's job is daunting. Often, you have to make big decisions without knowing exactly how they will turn out. Many factors—all of them well beyond your control—can affect the outcome of those decisions: future economic trends, the behavior of competitors, the success or failure of new technology, possible governmental regulation.To do a good job on these "big bet" decisions you must base your actions on the best available information, solid reasoning, and clear thinking. But it can get confusing when you add risk and uncertainty to the mix. In this webinar, we will explore the five things every executive needs to know about how to handle—and embrace—risk.
